Mini Chocolate Samosas

Samosa Dough:

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for rolling/dusting
  • 1/2 cup desi ghee (pure clarified butter)
  • 2/3 cup warm milk (add this a little at a time)

Chocolate Filling:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate (grated or small chunks/pieces)
  • 1/8 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

Equipment required:

  • 1 mixing bowl
  • Measuring cups and measuring spoons
  • 2 small bowls (glass preferably) to microwave ghee and chocolate
  • Spoons and a fork for mixing and filling
  • Rolling pin
  • Circular cookie cutter (approximately 4 inch diameter)
  • Pizza cutter for shaping dough
  • Small bowl of water
  • Deep fryer or wok for frying

Method:

Make a soft dough by mixing ingredients. Roll out very thin and cut out circles with a cutter. 

Shape and fill chocolate samosas, and rub water on edges to seal. It is very important to ensure the samosas are sealed well to prevent leakage of the chocolate during frying.  Rubbing the water on all edges will help bind the dough together. 

Leave chocolate samosas in the fridge for a minimum of one hour (cover with plastic wrap to prevent drying) prior to deep frying on medium heat until golden brown. Check out my video below!
